Central picture legend: Effect of thoracic robotic surgery on pneumonia and hospital stay during 2010-2020.
In lung cancer surgery, RA is a safe and feasible technique that reduces significantly postoperative complications when compared to OT.
The benefice of short and long-term outcomes in lung surgery, with minimally invasive approaches and open thoracic surgery are still controversial. In our retrospective study with propensity score analysis, RA seemed to be associated with a significant reduction of atelectasis pneumonia, sepsis, hemorrhage, arrhythmia and LOS compared to OT in our French surgical population, suggesting that it is a safe and feasible surgical technique for early stage LC.
